Rick Kent

Even though this shot isn't from Firebird, it's still very cool in our books. This is Rick Kent, American Falls, running in his SS/A Dart at Irwindale Raceway. At the time, he was running into the 10.80's (at 126 mph). This photo dates back to the early 70's and if you look very closely you'll see an original 1968 Firebird decal in the wing window. Don't be surprised if one of these days we'll see Rick back poundin' the pavement at Firebird (and in all likelihood racin' a Mopar of some type).
